Excerpt: This unit is excellent and has more features than I realized when I bought it. Setup was simple and it is mostly intuitive to use. The menu system requires some getting use to and a call to tech support was useful to decode the menu system. Tech support is fast and accurate.
Excerpt: Replaced my old NAD receiver with this one. For a basic two channel setup for listening to classical music it works very well. There are plenty of hookups, including one for a phono/turntable, which is rare nowadays. Everything sounds clean and clear on my KEF speakers, plenty of power.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls
Excerpt: I use this receiver with my ipad to stream music over some big old speakers I bought at a rummage sale. Once I got it going, the sound was unbelievable! I have been listening to the radio as well as I work in my studio.I thought it was glitching out but figured it was my wi-fi not reaching too far.
Summary: As some of the other reviewers wrote, this is a replacement for an old Onkyo receiver. I was always happy with that receiver but I started having a few problems with it. This new one has features that didn't exist when I bought the old one: USB port, WiFi using a USB adapter, Bluetooth using a USB...
Pros: All around great performance at a reasonable price.
Summary: For the money, this is a great piece of equipment. It replaced a 20 year-old Onkyo receiver that was having some issues. Wanted a stereo receiver because the room is not organized well for an A/V receiver (Samsung soundbar from Crutchfield a few years ago for TV sound).
Pros: Price Great sound Easy setup phono connection
Summary: This receiver does a lot of things well. It serves as the nexsis of my sound system, connecting radio, cable TV, internet, woofer, CD, DVD, computer and looks good doing it. I also got the optional LAN device which allows me to putter about the garage while listening to my personal Pandora "Amy...
Summary: I replaced a 30 year old Onkyo receiver with this one and absolutely love it. The reception is so good that I pick up stations I've never heard. The sound is excellent too. Having a second zone was my primary reason for getting a new receiver so that I could keep the outdoor speakers shut off or the...
Summary: This receiver has shown me the folly of trying to use a multi channel receiver to play just music. For pure 2 channel sound this will blow just about anything else out of the water. This receiver is being used for a phono, CD changer, cassette and mini disc player.
